The Longest Night: The Bombing of London on May 10, 1941 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Longest Night reveals the untold story of the horrific bombing raid that almost brought Britain to military collapse - using extensive survivors' testimony and previously classified documents to reveal just how close the Luftwaffe came to total victory. This vivid, dramatically told account depicts how fate shifted based on Hitler's mistaken belief that he'd actually lost the air war over Britain - and portrays the unsurpassed, "we-can-take-it" bravery of the British people when they'd been pushed beyond all human endurance.

Synopsis:

Drawing upon eyewitness accounts, Mortimer delivers the first in-depth account of the World War II air raid--London, May 10, 1941--that almost defeated England.

About the Author

Gavin Mortimer has published articles in such publications as London Evening Standard, Observer, Guardian, Esquire, BBC History, and Rugby World. The Longest Night is his first book to be published in the United States.
